March is nutrition month and the time for hopping bunnies and Easter Eggs!

So this month I decided to share the Spicy Egg Curry recipe, as eggs are one of the most nutritious foods around.

It’s a perfect dish for Easter feast.

Eggs provide 14 important nutrients including Vitamins A,D, E, folate, iron, zinc, omega 3 and choline. They are a great source of protein, good for your bones, teeth, skin and eyes.

Most of the egg’s nutrition is in the yolk, including half the protein.

Here’s the nutritional information on eggs per 53 g serving:

  • Calories: 70 Cal
  • Fat: 5 g
  • Sodium: 65 mg
  • Carbohydrate: 1 g
  • Protein: 6 g

According to Canada’s Food Guide 2 eggs equal 1 serving of meat.

Interestingly, white and brown eggs have the same nutritional value!

So let’s dive into the recipe now.

This is a main dish which you can serve with plain rice (brown/ white), bread, roti/naan, or even quinoa.
